Graduation Quilt

Post by Rgus63 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:07 am

I want to be able to convert the sound file of my granddaughter's heart beat (before birth) into a jpg so I can take it into Photo Shop and deal with colors and depth. I can print it out from audacity and get a fine image, but I cannot take it into Photoshop and work with it there. Her pre birth heartbeat will be printed out to become a square in the quilt I'm making for her graduation from high school.

Does anyone have an idea of how I could take the graphic image of her heart beat on the audacity screen and export it to become a JPG?

Thanks for letting me ask.

You could try viewing the recording in Spectrogram View (http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/spec ... _view.html) and then take a screenshot of the track (http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/help ... shot_Tools...). Adjust the Spectrogram setting to make it look pretty (manual.audacityteam.org/man/audio_track_dropdown_menu.html#Spectrogram_Settings)

Alternatively you could try using Sonic Visualizer (http://www.sonicvisualiser.org/) which has many more visualisation options than Audacity.

All normal heartbeat patterns will look very similar ...
